below is from a Scammer! Some of the emails
may not look like scams, but they all lead to the same
thing. The scammer will pay by check (cashier's check/money
order) for more then the pet is worth, then they will
ask you to send them back the difference in money. A
couple weeks later you find out the check was fake and
the bank will take it out of your account. This scam
can be set up several ways.
key points for pointing out a scammer:
1. Doesn't care much about the pet, just the transaction.
2. Says they will use their own shipper.
3. 95% of the scammers are from overseas (Nigeria, Israel, South Africa)
4. Pays you more then the pet is worth, then asks for the difference in money back.

I am James Lewis, a respectable business man from Canada. I am indeed interested in your puppy posted for sale. I want to buy the puppy as a surprise birthday gift for my 23 year old daughter. I will like to know if the puppy is still available for sale and will also like to know your final asking price for the puppy. I have a shipping agent who will come over there to pick the puppy as soon as we have agreed on a price and the payment is completely received by you. Well, I want to know if you have the health certificate of the puppy. Please let me know your last offering price of the puppy, reason you are selling it and a recent photo of it(If available) so we can proceed from there.
The puppy will be very well taken care of by my daughter and I.. My daughter knows how to train and take care of a puppy, so you need not to worry at all. I promise and assure you that the puppy will be going to a good home. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
